Protestants were followers of Christianity.

History Edit

The First Doctor described the 16th century trial of Martin Luther as a "linchpin" of the Protestant Reformation in Europe. (PROSE: The Price of Conviction)

In 1554, Queen Mary I of England enacted Heresy Laws against English Protestants, especially those who voiced support for her younger half-sister Elizabeth, who was herself a Protestant. Queen Mary told the Sixth Doctor that she would "wipe the Protestant scourge from every corner of England." (AUDIO: The Marian Conspiracy)

On 24 August 1572, many French Protestants (referred to as "Huguenots") were killed in the St Bartholomew's Day massacre. (TV: The Massacre) However, many other Huguenots left France and settled in Wandsworth, London, near the River Wandle. Among them was an ancestor of Dodo Chaplet. She had discovered this while researching her family tree for a school project. (PROSE: Who Killed Kennedy)

Following the Great Fire of London in September 1666, many Protestants, including King Charles II, blamed the English Catholics for setting the conflagration.

Charles II died in 1685 and was succeeded his younger brother James II. Given that James II was a Catholic, his accession to the throne of Protestant England created discontent among the English nobility and public, which ultimately led to him being overthrown in the Glorious Revolution in November 1688. (AUDIO: The Glorious Revolution)

The First Doctor's companion Steven Taylor and the Second Doctor's companion Victoria Waterfield were both Protestants. (TV: The Massacre; PROSE: Screamager)

Marunianism was founded after the Protestant church accepted all forms of technology. (PROSE: Dry Pilgrimage)
